well the site said this when describing the linkic said:Ummm, since when are we on dialup with UUNET? (Unless there is another problem that's no longer there now?)
Our NOC is responsible for all network monitoring and fault resolution for the backbone network and customer circuits.
nope, my point was that there was no incedent report at UUNET, WBS only post incedent reports after the fact and UUNET ussually post as soon as it happens, so my point was there can't be a UUNET problemoic said:Ok, I got the impression (when you posted the link) that there was actually an incident report about the problem we're experiencing.
The host name was not found during the DNS lookup. Contact your system administrator if the problem is not found by retrying the URL.
**** that! This is bull$hit!madsimba said:Just called the iburst helpdesk.
The reponse was this: We have throttled bandwidth while we move the users over to the new management system. The alternative they said was to take the network down for about 5-6 hours instead.
Now I ask: Why was this not done b4 they launch and why were we not told about this.
They said it should be sorted out by midnight...........
Hmmmm: Wonder if Winston is running iburst
